Evaluating FareShare’s Impact on Individuals
Our recent evaluation in partnership with the National Council of Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) looked at the impact FareShare’s work has on people who access food services. Through data gathered from more than 2,600 individuals, the evaluation found evidence of the life-changing impact food has on individuals.
People reported several positive outcomes, including:
- improvements in access to healthy food

The evaluation also highlighted the rising impact of the cost of living crisis on a broad and diverse demographic, highlighting the need for inclusive and comprehensive food support services.
